If the site you want to report isn’t in the comments yet, leave a comment with the address.

Please also make a basic note about what exactly is wrong (page looks weird, can’t log in, music doesn’t play, etc.)

If you want to be a super duper good friend, please also try clicking on the lion icon, turn shield off, and let us know if that fixes the problem.

Original issue reported Brave blocks content

There are two website I see that do not play nicely with the dev build of Brave.

  1. when looking at the charts the boxes within the indicators flash or do not appear.26%20PM

  2. when in bitmex the boxes either flash or do not appear kind of like the problem with trading view. Seems to be just an issue with tiny check boxes on alot of websites! I have tried turning the shield off and that does not fix the problem either!18%20PM

Problem - Entire page is blank.

Shields off result - Works properly if “Ads and Tracking” are allowed.

Spotify Player

Warning message: “Enable playback of protected content in your browser”

“Allow site to play protected content” is enabled in Brave.


Problem: When highlighting files and then selecting Download, it’ll go through its “Zipping files…” and then when they’re ready to download, it gives you the “Are you sure you want to leave this site?” dialog:

It does redirect to a different domain than to retrieve the zipped files, but I’m not sure why Brave thinks I’ve made changes on that page…

Shields off result: Still happens.

Problem: “Fullscreen is unavailable”
Shield off: Unresolved
Issue seems to be intermittent.

Problem: No webpage is displayed.
Shield off: Site appears normally.

Problem: After initial sponsor video or Hulu statement, video attempts to load main feature but errors with code “3001. Please ensure your browser is supported” (Resolved by Widevine install and browser restart).
Shield off: Unresolved.

Problem: Videos errors and message indicates to check Widevinecdm component, which is not located in chrome://components. In fact, all of those components have an update error.
Shield off: Unresolved

Looking at the above feedback about Spotify, it seems protected content setting doesn’t enable widevinecdm. I refreshed Netflix and the Brave popup about Widevine came up, from which I hit the link to download. Refreshed Netflix again, still didn’t work. Went back to components page, saw it listed and hit update. It successfully updated and now Netflix is working. Hulu is still a no go though. EDIT: Scratch that, Hulu just required a browser restart. Now works.

Unable to log in using google account even if brave shield is turned off.

I get this problem on numerous sites: Check boxes and radio buttons while display blank (invisible) or flash into view and out, or what feels like disappear on mouse over or pressing.

Sometimes the whole thing settles down (as if there’s some redrawing routine that finally draws these without them being drawn over) but often the site is just no usable (or you don’t even see the option).

This should be fixed on the beta. Mind installing beta and giving it a go? Keep in mind Beta/Dev will have different profiles so you will still be able to use the existing profile as it is

It is working in the beta. Bit confused: I thought the Dev was bleeding edge, and beta less so… but you’re saying it’s the other way around?

Not really. Dev is still bleeding edge. Beta is more stable than Dev which will eventually become release. What ever fix is in beta will also be in Dev but chances of things breaking in Dev is more compared to Beta.
